WorldSBK PI Time Check / Final Combined Report

WorldSBK 2023

Phillip Island Pre-season Test Day
Third Superbike World PM

There was a fair amount of wind blowing straight into the main road as the final two-hour session was underway at Phillip Island this afternoon. The track temperature is almost 10 degrees warmer than in morning sessionabout twice the ambient temperature of 20 degrees.

Those warmer and windier conditions caused some riders to drop points in the first half hour. Remy Gardner was a notable exception, lowering his benchmark to 1m31,073 to top the timesheet.

Alvaro Bautista was then injured and dropped to the first 1m30 of the session, 1m30,404, then started a quick spin in quick succession.

A lot of other riders have run long distances but none of them showed speeds that can even match the world champion.

Toprak Razgatlioglu is still finding speed, coming up with fork changes in about a third of the session time.

For a moment the red flag stopped midway, yes more geese, saw everyone back in the hole.

One of the people who uses interruptions to try and make some changes is Remy Gardner, at the moment The half-way is still P2 on the time chart during this session. The Australian reports that the tire life has decreased quite a bit and is looking for some changes aimed at trying to achieve some tire life.

Tom Sykes fell on turn four early in the second half of the session. Bassani also went down. Petrucci later joined the same club.

With 30 minutes of this session remaining, Bautista is still more than half a second faster than anyone while Gardner is still at P2 but closely followed by Rinaldi, Locatelli, Rea and Razgatlioglu. The Turk has come again for more fork tuning, shock absorbers and gearshifts.

Meanwhile, Bautista continued to spin rounds that were for the most part faster than his opponent’s best single attempt.

Michael Rinaldi entered the pit with just over half an hour left to change suspensions at both ends.

Jonathan Rea then went down on the fourth turn but was able to get back up and go back to the hole. Ten minutes later, Lorenzo Baldassarri also went down and we got a short red flag pause with less than 20 minutes left in the session.

The pit lane reopened with 15 minutes remaining, but neither Bautista nor Gardner was in a hurry to return to the track. Bassani then went down carrying the yellow flag where the racers’ lap times were cancelled.

Remy Gardner was back on track with less than ten minutes left, so was Michael Rinaldi and the Italian quickly pushed Gardner back to P3 on the timed screen.

Lorenzo Baldassarri then caught fire, literally… GMT Yamaha man’s YZF-R1M caught fire at the Southern Loop.

With two minutes remaining, Dominique Aegerter moved up the ladder after dropping 1m30,739 to return to P2, pushing Rinaldi back to P3. Andrea Locatelli then improved to push Gardner back to P5. Any late charges against Gardner were then hit hard by a bike incident that stopped him on a second turn late in the session.

Alvaro Bautista didn’t bother to go out during the last part of the training session, his height of 1m30,202 compared to the morning was good enough to top. On the back of the steady pace the Spaniard showed here this week, the signs are ominous for the title contenders. This could mostly be a Phillip Island specific situation, but otherwise the rest of them will be fighting for number 2 this season as no one here can come close to him in the long run. it today.

In terms of combined time, Andrea Locatelli leads Michael Rinaldi P2, both setting their best times on Tuesday morning.

Toprak Razgatlioglu hasn’t improved today but is P4 thanks to his Monday afternoon time while Jonathan Rea is P5 against his Tuesday morning time.

Dominique Aegerter got promoted to P6 on a last-minute charge this afternoon but it was the only fast lap the Swiss driver has scored in two days.

Philipp Oettl was seventh and Iker Lecuona eighth at their Tuesday morning time.

While Remy Gardner slipped to 9th in terms of combinations, he was one of the few riders to progress in each session. Gardner’s best of 1m31,073 came early in the final session before a long road and was 8/10 of Bautista’s outright P1 benchmark. A good start.

For reference, the lap record here set by Tom Sykes is 1m29,230 during the 2020 Superpole session in a BMW. As a result, times are not really fast these days and there are certainly many reasons for that, not only due to the weather but also due to the limited allocation of their preferred tyres.

The next World Superbike riders will hit the road this Friday, February 24, for a 45-minute opening practice session marking the first lap of the 2023 FIM Superbike World Championship. Here it is expected. It is expected to be very warm on Friday with some forecasters predicting a high of 35 degrees.

The first race of the season will be held on Saturday with a 22-round competition. Saturday’s forecast is for possible showers but mostly fine and temperatures around 30 degrees.

The Sunday Superbike race is expected to run more than ten laps at 13:00 p.m. Sunday in cooler conditions. This was followed by the third and final race of the weekend at 1600 over 22 laps, 97.79 km. For comparison, the Australian Superbike powered races this weekend will take place over 12 laps with a distance of 53.34 km.
